The international festival creates a space for artists, scholars, and audiences to share, respond, and reflect beyond traditional, commercial performance spaces that often exclude people and limit access.

Tuesday’s Cutting Edge Global Video Series presents a set of short experimental videos created by collaborative teams of scholars and artists, curated from RMIT University and the University of Toronto. On Wednesday, founder and director of indigenous Grupo Folklórico P’urhépecha in Michoacán, Mexico, José Alberto Velázquez Campoverde, presents selections of traditional dance work performed by the youth group. On Thursday, Mark DeGarmo Dance presents the Global edition of its Virtual Salon Performance Series 2020-2021, dance works-in-progress with a facilitated audience response, to begin the series’ upcoming season.
